As inner Melbourne’s only Catholic co-educational secondary school, girls and boys at St Mary’s College share their educational journey together. Your child will develop confidence and experience real-world learning for life beyond secondary school.

Christian Brothers College St Kilda embracing co education as St Mary's College was an exciting and obvious next step for a Catholic Secondary School in Inner Melbourne. It was hardly original thinking! Significantly single sexed schools in Melbourne and other parts of the country have been embracing co education for many years. Wesley College, Geelong Grammar, Carey Baptist Grammar and Assumption College Kilmore are notable examples. St Mary's College understands that "the smartest person in the room, is the room". Co education is an obvious step towards full diversity and inclusion to ensure that a variety of lived experiences, orientations, identities, cultural backgrounds and gender have agency and voice in the production of solutions to challenges. Surely this is what Catholic Education should be doing, to best prepare our students to take their place as leaders in faith, our workforce, our democracy and our community.

At St Mary’s College our students develop mutual respect and trust for one another. We are dedicated to social and emotional development of your child's growth into a responsible young adult. Our students learn to see each person as an individual with intrinsic worth and dignity, looking beyond stereotypes and assumptions.

From the co-educational journey at St Mary’s College, emerge dynamic learners who thrive, building their independence, confidence and maturity to best prepare them for the joys and challenges of a bright future.

At St Mary's College we aim to lift all students higher.
